Meditations On The Hanged Man (Tarot Card)

posted by Aliza Einhorn

"jupiter in leo" Hung up. Strung up. That’s what I sometimes feel and see when I see the Hanged Man.

And then other times it’s just a wait. Pause. Break in action. Surrender to the moment, on the dot. Do nothing. Breathe. Hung up. Strung up :)

This is one of THOSE Tarot cards though — double dose of enigma (and confusion?) surrounds it. See, the dude (I’ve never seen a version of this card where the figure didn’t appear to be male) is hanging upside down. He’s hanging from a tree branch. He’s hanging by one foot. The other leg crosses behind. The nimbus around his head suggests, to me, that he’s blessed. He’s living his life in the light of the Divine. He’s guided, whether or not he knows it. So although he’s suspended, although he hangs from a tree branch, arms behind his back, he’s got this. He’s okay.

When you see this card? The same applies to you.

I remember, early on, when I first started reading/studying Tarot, seeing the word sacrifice associated with this card and yes I have had that meaning come up in readings. There may be something you have to give up in order to get. An offering made. A bargain.

Another common interpretation: new perspective. Makes sense right? Hanging upside down, can’t move. No wonder you see things differently now. Make the best of it. And perhaps that, in and of itself, is the sacrifice. You have to give up… what you thought you knew. Gravity.

The Major Arcana cards are RBD (really big deals). They aren’t the mundane daily-do of the pip cards or the people of the Court cards. The Major Arcana are the larger cycles, terrain you must travel. Unavoidable. Fate. Like the transits of the outer planets in astrology. The Major Arcana is your Jupiter through Pluto.

He’s waiting. You’re waiting. He’s willing. You’re willing. Willing to wait.

So many layers and levels to this card but let’s stop here for now :)

Some keywords to keep in mind:
*surrender (of ego, of belief, what you think you know)
*suspension (you are here, nothing you can do, can’t make life move any faster)
*letting go (releasing, eliminating, giving away, clearing out, sweeping)
*waiting (for the right conditions, right time, right person)
*sacrifice (can’t have it all, have to choose but feel you can’t choose? then wait until you can)
*feeling stuck (relax despite the discomfort, pain is inevitable but suffering is optional)
*waiting (to see what will happen, who will show up, giving people rope, slow down, breathe)
*finding yourself/self-discovery (who you are truly, madly, deeply)
*peace (is all around you)
*reversal (of your energy being drained. If you’ve been depleted, you start feeding yourself better. Chakra balancing)
*new perspective (of course you will see things differently now, can you practice seeing through new eyes?)
*the mystic (is who you are now, don’t fight it, believe it)
*with God (you are not alone, you have never been alone, you are not alone)
*slow down (in through the nose, out through the mouth, alternate nostril breathing, sit)
*listening (say less, hear more, listen with your entire body, from crown to toes)

Tarot For Jupiter In Leo!

posted by Aliza Einhorn

"wheel of fortune tarot card meaning Aliza Einhorn" The biggest astrological news at the moment is Jupiter having left crabby Cancer for furry Leo. And there is SO MUCH big astrological news at the moment (this week and next week) but I’ve got my eye on this one, and also the upcoming New Moon in Leo on July 26th.

There will be a Sun Moon Jupiter conjunction in Leo somewhere in your chart! What does this mean in plain English? One little section of the wheel that is your birth chart (a map of the heavens at the time you were born) will be all lit up and since we are talking LEO, that light will be super strong, super bright! Leo is fire sign. It is a royal sign! Leos are the Kings and Queens of the zodiac. Pedigree or not, they sure act like it ;) Their bravado and confidence is matched only by their massive generous hearts.

*
We just moved in to our new apartment! Today is the third full day (including moving day) and it wasn’t until last night that I unpacked my Tarot decks. Now, I am not a superstitious or overly ritualized reader. I don’t cut the deck a certain number of times. I don’t shuffle a certain number of times. I don’t even have a special magic cloth to wrap my decks in. I don’t wave a wand  or utter abracadabra ;) Although this work is mystical, intuitive, metaphysical, it is also very practical. I’m a practical mystic. And I packed my Tarot decks in ziploc bags for the move :)

When I took out the two decks that I use the most? I don’t know how to describe exactly. The decks felt not alive but…
And not like old friends but…
It felt like energy that had been cooped up uncoiling and opening up. A zap. All the energy from all the readings I’ve done.

So last night in one of the chat rooms I run, I did some free Tarot draws to get back in groove. (Which reminds me, I’m doing an astrology — with a smattering of Tarot — e-course starting next week. You can email me if you want to know more. Click on the link at the end of this post for my email address.)

*
So I decided to draw just one card and what a perfect card for Jupiter in Leo. I drew THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE! This card is often associated with Jupiter: luck, good fortune, living large, expansion, philosophical meanderings, adventure, exploration, faith, optimism.

On the one hand, we don’t know which way it will go. The Wheel goes up and the Wheel comes down. It’s unpredictable. No stasis here! Anything is possible. The Wheel of Fortune can bring a miracle to your life. Or the crash ending of a beloved relationship (just one example). But it’s not a Tower-type feeling. I think when the Wheel portends news or events that you do not want, it’s more subtle than Death or Tower AND that something good  (or something uncertain!!!) shows up in its place — a substitute. One thing is certain: CHANGE.

I have to admit though, despite my often realistic view of this card (all that jazz about nothing being permanent and ups and downs on the wheels of life) sometimes I just feel GOOD when I see this one. And also, context is everything. I once drew a three card spread consisting of Death, the Three of Swords, and the Wheel of Fortune. The Wheel, to me, was a promise. That after Death, after Three of Swords loss, there would be life again.

Some keywords for when you see the Wheel of Fortune:

*breakthrough
*fortune
*action
*change of circumstance
*fate (it’s out of your hands)
*new luck
*new opportunity
*whatever it is, it’s BIG
*new chapter
*motion
*Divine intervention
*abundance
*your life is expanding
*windfall
*recognition

And I know it’s a risk to draw just ONE card for all of Jupiter in Leo for EVERYONE everywhere but think about it: isn’t that Jupiter? Isn’t that Jupiter in Leo? Grand expansive RICH energy, richer than the most scrumptious peach tart and cool iced tea sipped on a glorious afternoon in mid-summer, fresh breeze in the air ahhh…

I don’t want to say Jupiter in Leo is lazy. I know plenty of hard hard hard hard working Leos! But Jupiter expands what it touches and Leo loves a little luxury. And then a little more.

Tarotscope For The Week Of July 13th

posted by Aliza Einhorn

"jupiter in leo" The emotional intensity of this weekend’s Full Moon in Capricorn left many of us zonked. Is it time to pick up the pieces and move forward? I say YES!

Let’s draw a few cards for your week ahead on the topics of LOVE, MONEY, and WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW MOST:

Ten of Cups, Ten of Pentacles, The Tower!

I drew these cards one at a time, in the order above, for love, money, what you need to know, and I thought to myself YES! YES! Nooooooooooooooooooooo!!!

Although I do have friends and clients who don’t mind seeing the Tower , symbolizing sudden change and shocking surprise, it’s my least favorite card in the deck. In the context of our recent Full Moon however it makes perfect sense. There was much to let go of, to release, and you’re not done yet. This process continues next week for you.

Try to erase from your mind the frightening Rider Waite vision of flames and lightening bolts and falling from the sky and instead picture this: liberation.

What does that look like to you? What does it feel like? You couldn’t get out on your own. You had to be forced. Now you are free.

The two TENS show the most best we can hope for and have. Ultimate love, ultimate safety. I’m not feeling these cards cynically or darkly at all, despite the exploding Tower. In fact, I think the Ten of Cups and the Ten of Pentacles IS your Tower. You may be shocked to discover that your love, family, foundation, and security are as succulent and sturdy as can be.

See? That’s the surprise. You have what you need, but you needed the Tower experience to reveal it.

I drew one more for good luck. Two of Pentacles. Yes, you need to adapt to all the changes, faster than you’d prefer, but fun, just like the juggler’s pins, is in the air. When you see the Two of Pentacles, please know that you have every reason to be hopeful. This card isn’t just a word of advice, that you better feel better or else. It’s letting you know that you WILL feel better and may even enjoy the ride.

In fact hmm I’m feeling the Two here as a kinder, gentler Tower. You got this.

Dear Readers, are you feeling the Tower?

Meditations On The Justice (Tarot Card)

posted by Aliza Einhorn

"full moon in capricorn" I used to get annoyed when I’d see this card. Didn’t know what to make of it. Justice for what? For who? The image didn’t speak to me. Same for the Temperance card. In fact, I found them — gasp — boring!

But now Justice is one of my favorites. When I see this card, the message is LOUD AND CLEAR: Justice will be done. Notice that Justice does not have her eyes closed. She sees what’s gone on. She’s working behind the scenes. Her scale is balanced. If you have been treated unfairly, and you see this card, know that you will be redeemed.

And I love her pageboy haircut ;)

*
This weekend is the Full Moon in Capricorn. Full Moons are releasing moons. They symbolize endings. Resolution. Change. We are supposed to let go.

Is there something, or someone, you want, need to let go of? An idea maybe. A state of mind. Fear. So much fear.

I can think of one state of mind in particular, for myself. I’d love to let it go. I may do a ritual. Send it away through fire. I’ve been lighting a lot of candles lately. I hope you realize that Jupiter (planet of good fortune and opportunity) is changing signs this month, from water sign to fire sign, moving from zaftig sensitive Cancer to noble, magnanimous Leo. THERE WILL BE DRAMA.

And speaking of Jupiter leaving Cancer, this will be our last Full Moon in this apartment, in this neighborhood, in this borough of the great state of New York. It’s a pretty big ending for me, with my Sun (self), Mercury (mind), and Mars (motivation) in Cancer.  Home is everything. Home is home.

*
And now I want to tie it all together :) the Justice card, the Full Moon in Capricorn, and Jupiter entering Leo. Capricorn and Saturn are the structures of your life. They are changing under the Full Moon. Quite literally for me, a change of house.

See, you also need to decide. About your life. What’s it gonna be? What’s next?  In astrology, Leo is associated with the Sun and the Sun in your birth chart is YOU. Justice is about seeing yourself clearly. You have a year for this, a whole year, to open your eyes. Go as slowly as you want. Comfort yourself when the shocks come.

And have fun. Leos love their fun.

:)

Tarot For The Full Moon In Capricorn: The Hunger

posted by Aliza Einhorn

"full moon in capricorn" A Full Moon in Capricorn means a Full Moon in Saturn.
A Full Moon OF Saturn. A cup of conditions. A helping of wisdom.
A diet of sorrow? Emotional truths long delayed — or repressed — come floating up like bellies.
Whatever you thought was dead? IT’S NOT DEAD.

What is Saturn?

Some handy keywords for you:
caution, restriction, delay, sorrow, WISDOM, the father, age, ambition, integrity. Tradition. Arid. Thirsty. Bone-dry. THE RULES.

It’s an interesting concept in and of itself — a Full Moon in Capricorn — because the Moon is associated with Cancer (the most emotional of the Sun Signs) and Full Moons tend to reveal what’s been hidden. We lose our shelter on Full Moons, we lose our skeleton, our skin, exposed for all to see.

What is the Moon (and Cancer)? The breast. The nourishment. Milk. The milk of memory. Food. Nurturing tears of joy. The wet. Your feelings.

Saturn needs to be desert, not the soggy bogland. So what happens when unbridled feeling (Moon/Full Moon) meets Saturn? I think what happens is fear. Paralysis. Refusal. The temptation is to ignore that the long delayed feelings are there, right there in the room with you. You don’t want them. What you want is to reject them.. This Full Moon in Capricorn will bring you news, revelations around how you SUPPRESS WHAT YOU ACTUALLY NEED MOST OF ALL. Yeah. You know I’m right.

The Capricorns or Saturn-heavy people in your midst may not be soooo comfortable this weekend. Return to the original keywords above. Saturn/Capricorn rules restriction. Limitation. They don’t want these Full Moon feelings. It’s all a little too moist. Fear of needs never being met, fear of going hungry. It’s an anorexia moon. See, the temptation is there to not even feed yourself. Why? Because THEY didn’t. THEY failed you. Failure to nurture. Failure to thrive. Failure to feed.

But it doesn’t have to be that way anymore. You CAN feed and get fed. You can be the mother/father you never had.

Even before the Moon becomes Full, it makes major aspects to various other planets, from a soft and gauzy Moon Neptune sextile to a profound Moon Pluto conjunction. The Moon’s on a journey long before the opposition hits and then carries on with Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Mercury. Give it words. Give the pain words.

I think you’ll be fine. Follow the Moon and you’ll be fine.

Advice from the Tarot:
And yes I really do pull a card at random for this.
KING OF WANDS.
Interesting to see fire (Wands) in response to the Full Moon in earthy Capricorn. He’s our King of Ego and I don’t mean that in a bad way. I mean confidence in his creativity. He’s intuitive. He’s brave. He’s hot! You can let go a little. Full Moon in Capricorn + King of Wands = an intentional calculated risk. Only question is where/what/how/which direction.

Take your fears in hand, my friends. Mother them, father them. The King of Wands believes you can. And he’s got ideas for you on how to go about it so listen up. Look for signs. Signs of life and fire.

Meditations On The Wheel (Of Fortune Tarot Card)

posted by Aliza Einhorn

"full moon in capricorn" Every new loss is a repeat of the first.
The first loss.
Is every gain a repeat of the first? The first time your mother held you.

The Sun is in Cancer now so home, family, and mother metaphors come easy, they slip off the tongue like pearls.

A couple weeks ago we got the news that we have to move.
About a month before that, I got a Tarot reading.
Yes, I give them  and I get them! My Tarot lady did a Celtic Cross for me and then groups of three cards, for specific questions.

One of the most striking spreads revealed the Death card followed by the Wheel of Fortune.
Change.

Every loss is a repeat of the…
Every loss is a repeat.

I’m sad about moving. And I know that sadness has attachments to it — to the past. Like in an email you might send — a photo. A document. A love letter. An attachment.

The Wheel of Fortune has no such attachments. It drops them all with every uptick of the wheel.

Of all the cards of metamorphosis in the Tarot, of all the cards of profound change in the Tarot, I think the Wheel of Fortune is my favorite. It’s less startling than the Tower. Less heavy than Death.

The changes, in fact, could be sweet.

Some renditions of this card depict a carnival ride, Wheel of Fortune as ferris wheel gone wild. Up up up then down down down — but ferris wheels are supposed to be slow. Meditative. Cloud-watching.

See, I think it’s both.

You’ll get your peace — when you see the Wheel — you’ll get your miracle, but not until after the wild.

The Tower: A Story For Mercury Retrograde

posted by Aliza Einhorn

"mercury in cancer" When Mercury went retrograde, we met. When Mercury went direct (earlier today), we met again. The man in the rain-soaked fedora. Remember him? Gemini Sun, Virgo Rising rain-soaked fedora man. Back with a new question for the Oracle. And a new hat.

(You can read Part One here.) 

Listen, he said. The business thing? Fine. The missing-my-plane thing? Mostly fine. What I need now is

Yes?

I can’t say. I’m not permitted to say. Can you ask the cards for an answer without knowing the question? Two cards this time, he said.

I admit I didn’t mind not knowing. I like a challenge.

There’s a woman, I said. Causing you trouble. The Tower and the Nine of Pentacles. WAIT. No.

It’s not that she’s causing you trouble. The opposite is true. She’s keeping the Tower from falling on you. Do you know who this is?

I slid the card towards him. He nodded.

The Tower card indicates change, sometimes frightening change. Sudden. We can’t prepare. We get thrown from the horse.

But the woman in the Nine of Pentacles is a master. I can’t even call her a “mistress” (although I did wonder if she was his mistress, truth be told). Master is the better word here. She’s in command of the garden, in command of her money, and her pet is a bird of prey.

The Tower can fall all it wants. She won’t. She doesn’t.

Dear Readers, I admit that the Tower is my least favorite card in the deck, although I’ve seen it for the mundane (a couple having a lovers’ quarrel) as well as for shocking news (eviction, health crisis, and more). When you see the Tower, you know that things will not, cannot, remain the same.

Lucky for fedora man, the Nine of Pentacles did not reinforce the shock of the new but sent an affirming message.

Whether you are this woman or you know this woman, help is here.

As for the man, I look forward to his return next Mercury Retrograde.

Love,
Aliza

Tarotscope For The Week Of June 30th

posted by Aliza Einhorn

"jupiter in leo astrology" I’m not ready for the Wheel of Fortune yet. That’s what we’re up to in my Card Meanings series. Instead I wanted to look at the week ahead.

Astrologically speaking, Mercury will go from retrograde motion to direct motion: this is good!  Life gets a little less muddled and befuddled. Plans can be made again. We move forward again, just like Mercury.

And July is a big month. All kinds of planetary comings and goings, big shifts. I will address those as they happen! For the time being though, let’s talk next week:

One card for Body. One card for Mind. One card for Spirit.

Or as I like to call this spread: bone, brain, and blood.

What your body needs: Eight of Cups.

This speaks to me of “out of body” experiences (astral travel, getting a Reiki treatment, certain types of meditation) and regaining gentle tender connection with not just your physical body, but your emotional body. How you reach your body this week is through ethereal activity. Prayer. Clouds.

Ironic that I ask a question about body and I get Cups, the watery emotional realm. This is no coincidence. We can’t take care of our bodies while ignoring how we feel. After all the Sun is in Cancer!

The Eight of Cups is asking you: what (or who) are you leaving behind?  Yes there may be some lingering sadness or regret attached to this decision but you’re already on your way. It’s done. It’s good. Maybe you can leave that lingering sadness behind, hmm? Or not. You can still do what needs to be done, no matter how your heart feels.

I want you to fill up eight cups this week or come up with eight ideas, eight notions, light eight candles. I want you to be organized about it. The EIGHTS have an association with order. Eight ways to wake up. Eight resolutions, no matter how simple.

I also want to say:  your body is thirsty. And this could be a metaphor yes. Satisfy your spiritual thirst. But also drink more water.

What your mind needs: Wheel of Fortune! Now more than ever, your mind needs hope and faith in the future. The constant up and down, up and down as the wheel spins is exhausting! I don’t think 100% stability is possible at this time (is it ever?) but while you feel down? Look up at the sky.

When you feel lost and you need a pick-me-up, spin the wheel. You can make one. Seriously. Arts and crafts time. And not that you are looking for answers per se (or even advice) but just the ACTION itself. Even though this is a card for mind, the ACTION of spinning the wheel (Eight of Cups is also about movement) transforms the situation. You can even keep a pair of dice at home. And, again, not for assigning meaning to the outcome necessarily, but just to engage in that small physical act. Why? To get life moving again.

Also, let your mind roam. The figures and objects in this rendition of the card appear to be floating in the air. Let go of contraction and imprisoning thoughts. Free your mind. The angel (at the top of the card) is holding it all together so you don’t have to.

What your spirit needs: the Emperor. I feel like all these cards are leading us in the same direction. Towards movement, flexibility, and yet isn’t the Emperor stubborn? Mr. Rules? The father. YES. Your spirit needs fathering, support. Your spirit needs gathering. Had you been attending a class and recently dropped out? Who is there to teach you now? Stability amidst change. You need people who KNOW what they are doing.

"pluto opposition sun" He has been crowned by others. He’s a recognized authority. Mountains in the background, tulips at his feet, the world in his hands. Your spirit needs a little direction and a little beauty. I wouldn’t wait any longer. Find your next teacher.

I’d love to hear if these cards resonate for you! Let me know in the comments.

Have a good week xo

Love,
Aliza

You Are Not Alone: The Hermit

posted by Aliza Einhorn

"new moon in cancer" I was happy to see the Hermit this morning as I was checking what card to blog about next. From the power of the Chariot to the passion of Strength to the solitude of the Hermit. Alone time. Introspection. Guidance. Silence. Light. Wisdom. Searching.

And this, from writer Eden Gray: a journey may be necessary in order to gain knowledge.

When you see the Hermit, you may be the teacher. You may seek the teacher. Maybe both.

One thing is for sure: go slow.

*
The New Moon in Cancer is on Friday, June 27th!

New Moons are new starts. They are the seed times. Nothing is certain. Nothing is settled. We set intentions. We hope. We wish upon a star. We pray.

New Moon in Cancer would be an excellent time to set intentions regarding a new home, a new family, feelings of safety and security in your life.

Cancer, above all, is a FEELING sign. Sympathetic, empathetic, nostalgic, deep feeling, powerful, nurturing, creative, loving.

I’m a Cancer so I’m biased :) but on a good day? Nothing like a Cancer’s love. It’s the ideal mother’s love.

I remember years ago my roommate was going through a hard time, a depression. I don’t remember what I said… but something that I said to her made all the difference in the world. She said it was like heavenly hands coming down to help her.

This New Moon in Cancer is part sweet and part dark, like the best chocolate. I think some folks may even experience that emotional intensity tide usually felt on Full Moons so just be aware.

I think you will find some sturdy shelter from whatever storm is raging inside you, outside you. Stay there for as long as it takes, until the rains pass.

And notice that the Hermit has a lantern with a star in it. This light is yours.

Love,
Aliza

More Tarot For Mercury Retrograde: What Do You Want To Redo?

posted by Aliza Einhorn

"mars opposition uranus" When Mercury is retrograde, we are told what to do in terms of what NOT to do. Don’t buy a new computer. Don’t sign a contract. Your flight gets delayed. You wander the lonely airport halls in your bereft heels. Emails get sent to the wrong recipients. Why oh why did you send your hunky co-worker that love letter. You meant to save it in draft only.

We make more mistakes than usual. We make misunderstanding.

One of the trickiest parts of THIS Mercury retrograde period is that it happens in the sign of Gemini! See, Mercury “rules” Gemini thus we just can’t seem to make ourselves understood these days and it, well, it hurts.

In other words, please do not expect any straight talk until Mercury goes direct again on July 1st.

Mercury retrograde time is also the time of the RE.

Review. Renew. Reassess. Resume. Repeat. Reaffirm. Reiterate. Redo.  People or projects from the past come back. Come back to life.

Honestly, I don’t think you need to worry but yes it will be helpful if you adjust your assumptions of what can and cannot be said, heard, and understood at this time. 

ARE YOU HEARING ME? You could whisper, you could scream, you could say it in EVERY POSSIBLE WAY and still… you may not get through.

But that’s okay. It’s temporary.

I’m going to draw two cards for you now. Two cards of advice for Mercury retrograde in Gemini:

WOW TAROT THIS IS INTERESTING:

At first we see Justice, a Major Arcana card. And then the Nine of Cups!

These are two cards divergent in tone to say the least.

Justice is about, well, Justice. Justice is served. Getting what you deserve. As you can see, Justice is not blindfolded, and her scale is perfectly level. It’s not about winners and losers here. It’s about righting the wrongs. I think this is fascinating actually because this card is about clear thinking, clear seeing, and we’re talking about Mercury retrograde.

NOW IS THE TIME, my friends, now is the time for Justice to be done. And once Justice is done? You’ll have your Nine of Cups, your wish come true, your celebration, a little drinkie on the house.

The thing that’s got me puzzled though is this question: why NOW? Why Justice now? You’ve been wanting it for so long and it’s eluded you. What has changed?

We see the Knight of Cups (yes, sometimes I can’t stop at two cards). The FEELING has changed, says this Knight. One might even say he’s trying to bribe the judge, offering her a fist of flowers ;)

In either case, here’s the wisdom: through Mercury retrograde you actually can see MORE clearly than before. I know that may sound counter intuitive to some, but the very scrambling of the messages becomes a kind of… wiping off of the glass.

Extra credit: notice the Knight’s red and white flowers are the same as the ones in the Justice card. You may need to click on the picture for the full effect.

Love,
Aliza
